The Citrix NetScaler product line optimizes delivery of applications over the Internet and private networks, combining application-level security,
optimization, and traffic management into a single, integrated appliance. You install a NetScaler appliance in your server room and route all connections
to your managed servers through it. The NetScaler features that you enable and the policies you set are then applied to incoming and outgoing traffic.
A NetScaler can be integrated into any network as a complement to existing load balancers, servers, caches, and firewalls. It requires no additional
client or server side software, and can be configured using the NetScaler web-based GUI and CLI configuration utilities.
NetScaler appliances are available in a variety of hardware platforms that have a range of specifications, including multicore processors.
The NetScaler operating system is the base operating system for all NetScaler hardware platforms. The NetScaler operating system is available in three
editions: Standard, Enterprise, and Platinum.
